The big puppy is healthy and ready for adoption.
He's a big beefy, big boned boy and still has some growing up to do. Per previous owner, he was 10 months when he landed at the pound in December 2019. His ears still had stitches as if they had been cropped recently. They are all healed up now.
King is fostered in a home with kids, dogs and cats. He's getting a ton of socialization. His foster family takes him on outings, including visits to the farm in the country on weekends. He's taking everything in stride.
King Kong is kept in a crate when no one is home and at night. There's a fenced yard in his foster home with a large privacy fence.
Foster moms describes him as a happy goofball, with a medium/low energy level. She claims that he is very strong but listens well.
Behavior with people:
Very friendly and a well-behaved greeter. When King Kong meets people he does not jump all over them. He is comfortable though and eager to make friends.
Behavior with children:
King Kong is great with the children in his foster home, as well as all other children he meets. Foster mom reports no trouble what's so ever. He's a low-key dog with no hang ups.
Behavior with other dogs:
King is fostered with a 2 adult Pit Bulls, a nine-year-old Chihuahua and two cats. He does well with everyone but is showing dominance towards the other male. He's still young but we can see this behavior become more difficult in time. We will not place him with another male dog but a home with a female would work for him.
Behavior with other animals:
King does great with the dog-savvy cats in his foster home. His foster mom says that he doesn't appear to have a high prey drive.
King Kong might have never been trained to be housebroken or to even sit. His foster family is working on it and he's learning well.
King Kong is a remarkable dog. He is beautiful and has a personality to match. He really is a big lug and a hit with everyone he meets.
